AMLaP 2011

Architectures and Mechanisms for Language Processing

This 17th Annual Conference on Architectures and Mechanisms for Language Processing will take place Thursday, September 1st to Saturday, September 3rd 2011 in Paris, France.

AMLaP is an annual international conference, which has established itself as the premier European venue for interdisciplinary research on how people process language. The aim of the conference is to bring together psychological, computational, and theoretical perspectives on the cognitive mechanisms which underlie any aspect of human language processing. Submissions which integrate experimental psycholinguistic evidence with linguistic theory and/or with formal or computational models of cognitive processes are especially encouraged.

Topics relevant to the conference include (but are not limited to):

bilingual language processing
computational models, symbolic and connectionist
corpus-based studies and statistical mechanisms
cross-linguistic studies
dialogue processing
language comprehension
language production
lexical processing
learning mechanisms
models of acquisition
neurobiology of language processing
parsing and interpretation

Keynote speakers
